Actinic and Oxatis join forces in EU SME e-commerce
UK e-commerce vendor Actinic has agreed a strategic partnership with Oxatis, one of the main e-commerce providers in France, Spain and Italy. The joint venture will create a European group providing e-commerce systems to the start-up and SME markets with a customer portfolio approaching 20,000 e-tailers.
This union strengthens the group’s position in the e-commerce market in the UK, France, Spain and Italy. The group also takes the lead as the foremost e-commerce solution provider with over 11 million orders processed through Actinic and Oxatis retailers combined, representing more than £1 billion of online sales per annum.
The joint venture will be represented in the UK by the formation of a new business division called Actinic Online. This division will provide a full range of web-based e-commerce solutions offerings to the UK market, based on the Oxatis platform.
Chris Barling, CEO and founder of Actinic, says, “The combination of Actinic’s experience and that of Oxatis will help us to complement and strengthen the overall choice for both business customers and partners.”
